I know that people are making money from scanning and selling copies of manuals, and I am not looking to take away anyone's income, but would it be possible to have a library of manuals for members of this site to refer to? I would have to believe that it would be of benefit. Maybe it could be "Members Only".

Manuals are copyright protected by the people who write them. Unless Kubota or any other brand was offering the manuals for free it would infringe on the maker's copyright protections to do this without consent from the author/manufacturer/publisher.

Not saying that people don't scan and then sell copies of manuals without this consent anyway but there are hefty fines and sometimes jailtime associated with it if they are caught/prosecuted for it.
